You will have to determine zscore (use a ztable with the information you are given), then use the zscore formula to find x (the length).
Zscore formula is this:
z = (x  mean)/sd
mean = 24.3
sd = 1.8
Once you find the zscore in the table, substitute the zscore and the data above into the formula and solve for x.
